Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has been handed a four match touchline ban for the alcateration he had with Anthony Taylor during Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Burnley at the Emirates.
Arsenal took the lead through Shrokdan Mustafi’s first goal since joining Arsenal before a 90+3 minute penalty was given to Sean Dyche’s Burnley which Andy Gray slotted home. This sparked controversy from Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger as to why the penalty was given. The Arsenal boss was heard to have insulted fourth referee Anthony Taylor leading to him being sent off by referee Jon Moss. Wenger failed to leave the stadium and was seen to have pushed Taylor when he was directing him to leave the field.
Arsenal retook the lead through Alexis Sanchez late penalty to win 2-1.
Wenger’s four match touchline ban means he will be missing Arsenal’s next four domestic games comprising of Southampton in the FA Cup and Arsenal’s next three league games of Watford, Chelsea and Hull City.
This can be a blow to Arsenal title hopes as they seek to win the league title for the first time since the 2003/2004 season.
